DJ Nu-Mark


News of DJ Nu-Mark from Jurassic 5 fame returning to Montreal's Blue Dog Motel suited me just fine.

I was even happier to learn it would be strictly vinyl for the night. 



With a supporting cast including Mat The Alien, DJ PumpVinyl Ritchie & DJ Illo, one who is inclined to check out DJs spinning vinyl was guaranteed to be pleased that night indeed. 


My timing couldn't have been better.  I rarely look at the events section of my Facebook but I'm glad I did a few weeks ago.  It's possibly because it's a new year and I'm trying to do what I had not done before. 





I happened to check out the section just days before DJ Nu-Mark and crew would
arrive at Montreal's Blue Dog Motel for an all-7" records jam.  I knew that I would be there.





  
I was there very early for my own taste but was treated to a DJ set of vintage hip hop videos and music. I had not seen or heard some of those videos and songs in over a decade.  It was the great soundtrack to get me ready for the madness that would later land at the Blue Dog Motel.


Over an hour or so later, young men carrying luggage made their way to the DJ booth section of Blue Dog Motel and I knew that the show was about to begin.



Vinyl Ritchie was the first to touch the turntables with a dub/dancehall reggae/hip hop hybrid of sounds. 





I finally got to catch a DJ set from Mat the Alien.  I heard of his name because of the slipmats baring his name.   




  DJs Pump and Illo briefly brought some beats.



Next was the headliner DJ Nu-Mark to do his thing.  As much as I was among the few bloggers and photographers snapping pics of the DJs, as mentioned earlier this is a new year and I'm doing things differently.  I didn't play videographer like I have done in the past.  I wanted to enjoy the selections and the moments of the night.


As I told a gentleman that was watching me watch DJ Nu-Mark, I was there to learn how I could be the type of DJ he would watch others watch me one day.
